Moonlight

Just a quick post to mention something I realised last night.

After cycling home, I need to go through the garden and lock up my bike in the shed. Normally, Jon puts the outside light on for me, as it's dark by the time I get home. Without the light, I'm always worried about stumbling over pots/steps/our mini-greenhouse, which gets blown over by strong winds, etc, especially now that the garden is all muddy and slippery.

Jon was away last night, so I didn't have anyone to put on the outside light for me. However, it was more or less a full moon on a clear night, which meant that I was able to see my way through the garden very clearly. It made me think that I'm really pleased that we're going to climb Kili close to a full moon, because having the moonlight makes such a difference. It would be so demoralising to have to walk in pitch black - it'll be bad enough as it is!

Actually, it's funny that pretty much everywhere I look and everything I do reminds me of Kili now - even locking up my bike in the shed! I guess it goes to show that it's always in the back of my mind, and I'm preparing myself for it psychologically. That reminds me… I need to prepare for it financially too…. Must remember to pay up soon...
